"Old Mike" was a resident of the local mortuary. As I heard the story he had been found dead and embalmed but not buried. No one claimed the body until the allotted time had passed. When the time came to bury him, the story was picked up by the national news service. His family saw the story and claimed the body.

I remember as a child, being dared to touch the "petrified man". I don't know who was more petrified though.

I always thought it was a fascinating story that after all those years of not knowing what happened to himk, his family finally found him.
